Shubham was a bit sick on the first day of Maker Fair, but exhibited great spirit in exhibiting Braigo. People visiting his booth ranged from both children to adult. Considering it was a Lego Mindstorms project , children specially was enthralled by the creation and what it does and how? Adults showed equal interest in the creativity of the Lego application to help the Visually Impaired. He gave out Lego Mindstorms stickers that he got from Lego to all the kids that came to his booth. Many children came just to get the stickers. It was a big hit.
